Hi to all mother out there! Can you share your experiences in raising your children? I just gave birth to a healthy baby girl and I want to listen to your experiences in raising up a child for me to have an idea what I am suppose to do and not suppose to do with my child. I have some questions like, how do we instill in the mind of a child that she should not do something because it is bad? or she should do like this because it is good? Is it right to get angry when they are misbehaving? Thanks so much.. Your experiences will be my references as I raise my child and nurture her as she grew up. May God bless you all.

I have alot of experience in raising kids. I have 3 kids and 5 step kids. I would have to say trust yourself, your instincts. Always remember your child will make mistakes, love them anyways. Always talk to your child, they will listen even when you think they are not. Support their individuality, they will gain a mind of their own. Instill good morrals and values, they will carry them with them even though they will make mistakes. Do not put high expectaions on your kids, because if they do not live up to them they will feel like a failure. Let them be them. You will get angry or frusterated, just take a deep breath and try to approach the situation differently. But most of all I will say this again, talk to your child no matter how old. Good luck and I hope this helps.
